Cox® Technic Delivers Back Pain Relief for a Challenging Case: Disc Extrusion with Spondylolytic Spondylolisthesis
Extruded discs by themselves are painful and many times believed to be surgical issues. Spondylolytic spondylolisthesis alone is a disabling, painful condition and often thought to be a surgical issue requiring fusion. Bring these two conditions together in in one patient and the Augusta chiropractic patient and the treating physician like your Augusta chiropractor face a challenge that demands gentle, skilled care. A recently published case report of a patient with a disc extrusion – one that has escaped its outer bands and entered into the spinal canal space – and spondylolytic spondylolisthesis – involving separation of the pars interarticularis – described how just 9 visits in 4 weeks brought about pain relief. The patient who rated his pain a 9 out of 10 (a 10 being the worst pain) on visit 1 rated it 0 out of 10 on visit 9. At 10 years follow-up, the patient had no orthopedic or neurological issues and recounted no recurrence of the original symptoms. (1) What was the treatment plan?

Augusta CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Delight in This Apple Season!
Feed the gut. Lose some weight and raise your bone density to help your spine. Reduce your risk of diabetes and heart disease. Protect the brain. How? Have an apple! Apples are amazingly healthy! They have few calories, good pre-biotic pectin that nourishes the good gut bacteria, lots of fiber and water to fill you up, lots of polyphenols in the peel which are antioxidant, acetylcholine-level-preserving factors to protect the brain, and flavonoids that may lower blood pressure, cholesterol, and stroke risk. (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8) Apples supplement a healthy chiropractic approach to life!
